Apple skin pectin?
I am making apple pies and would love to make pectin from the skins since I will have a huge pile. I can feed them to the ducks/ hens and actually have some guilt because they love to race around with the spiraled skin hysterically before eating them.
But I am drifting sorry
I am using my juice extractor anyway and wondered if rather than cooking the pectin out could I just toss the trimmings into the juicer then cook that juice into pectin? ( the ducks/ hens a share)
The recipes I spot online are for putting the trimmings in a pot and cooking the pectin out, (it works great I have done it! )But my juice extractor is very efficient, I could save time, dishes and space trying to bake and cook for the week if I can just juice up the bits and boil?
I have made terrific working pectin from using my steam juicer but that thing is massive and defeats my desire to cut down on the work I keep creating because I can not stop myself from doing just one more "repurpose".... It lifelong addiction this is.
So in case I am confusing
Can I make fresh pectin from raw extracted apple trimming juice then cook it?
Has anyone tried this?
Thank you I am going to use it for fennel jelly if it works out, I just cut a lot of fresh fennel. Smells lovely
